Many great musical artists gave up the ghost in 2003 and they will be sorely missed. Tune in as the Inner Ear Detour bids a fond farewell to Othar Turner, Johnny Cash, Lou Harrison, Nina Simone, Anton Maiden, and others.

Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock
Milano is a Boston-based music journalist who has just published "Vinyl Junkies: Adventures in Record Collecting," an incredibly entertaining and funny journey in between the shelves and inner sleeves of some of the most obsessed record and music hounds in the world. We'll hear of the exploits of such fanatics as Peter Buck, R. Crumb, the Lyres' Monoman and others.


Kingface -- Recorded live @ the 9:30 Club in 1988
Tuesday, December 16th, 2003, 9am - Noon
on
Mike L.'s show
One of the more unusual bands to emerge from the 1980s punk rock scene in Washington DC, Kingface had a great musical kinship with early Van Halen and the classic Marshall Boogie acts of the 70s, yet they played right alongside hardcore-influenced bands like Beefeater, Soulside, and Fugazi. They released two of the most rollicking, fist-in-the-air ROCK EPs of the era and appeared on Dischord Records' seminal State of the Union compilation before breaking up. Mike has acquired an incredible live-off-the-board recording of Kingface performing at DC's legendary 9:30 Club, and with the band's blessing, will air the show in its' entirety. 100% guaranteed to kick you where it counts!


Paul Krugman

Monday, December 15th, 2003, 3pm - 6pm
on
Irene Trudel's show
A fab four from Brooklyn -- four bands, that is. Each are linked by a common thread of lushly dark songs that conjure up visions of times and events, personal and otherwise. All four play a show at the Knitting Factory Tap Bar December 18th, and present a little taste of that for the WFMU listeners.


The Klezmatics
Sunday, December 14th, 2003, 8pm - 10pm
on
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
The venerable Klezmatics present a preview of their latest project, the Yiddish songs of Woody Guthrie! Guthrie's mother-in-law was the well-known Yiddish lyricist Aliza Greenblatt and these songs are the fruits of their heretofore little-known collaboration, musically reinterpreted by the Klezmatics. The Klezmatics will present a full concert of these songs Dec 20 at the 92 St Y in Manhattan, and a CD will follow in the spring.


Miminokoto
Sunday, December 14th, 2003, 6am - 9am
on
Janitor From Mars with R. Lim
Tune in for an exclusive live set from Tokyo's Miminokoto, recorded during their head-turning, barn-burning zig-zag through the United States. Moving easily from fuzzed-out psych rave-ups to keenly empathetic improvisations, Miminokoto has a unique sound even while evincing its members' involvement with some of Tokyo's elite underground bands (including High Rise, Keiji Haino's Aihiyo, White Heaven and Che-SHIZU). The action starts at 8:00 AM sharp.


The Wide Right
Saturday, December 13th, 2003, 3pm - 6pm
on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

Their musical critique of Vincent Gallo's Buffalo 66 has landed them on Page Six, among other places. Today this Brooklyn-based quartet visit the Cherry Blossom Clinic for what's sure to be a blistering live set. These guys have a killer Detroit soulpunk sound not unlike the Paybacks or Detroit Cobras. Plus, their new album was produced by none other than Mr. Jim Diamond himself! Check out this session and then head out to Southpaw that night to see Wide Right live with the Figgs!

Nathan Michel
Wednesday, December 10th, 2003, 11pm - 2am
on
Advanced D & D with Donna Summer
Nathan Michel's last album, "Dear Bicycle" (Tigerbeat6), is a breathtakingly beautiful pop album made with a computer, fractured keyboards, slide whistles, weird samples and slide guitar. Nathan was kind enough to stop by and record a new song which will debut here on A D&D, and then hangs out and talks about his new album, being a Ph.D. candidate in composition (at Princeton no less), and his love for 70's pop rock.
